Big Sir to Cambria

Getting my cart on top of this little car was easier that I thought it would be!

I dawdled in Big Sir. I met lots of people, found lots of beautiful campsites, and took too long to get to San Louis Obispo by thursday, where I want to record at the farmers market. And my bike was slowly becoming a cripple. I had used three tubes, and most of a patch kit through my time in Big Sir. The road just ate my tires alive. So, my fried Rory gave me a ride for the last chuck of my journey to Cambria, the next town with a bike shop. The Cambria Bicycle Outfitters is a wonderful place, and the owner, Alan, helped me out a lot fixing up my bike, just to support the project. The stories from this part of the road are mostly from the people that I met along the highway, as well as in the campground I stayed at.


This great person was on his way to go help out in Haiti. I met him at Kirk Creek Campground.

There is a seperate track that is really long, but it is a good story, about the Dali Lama and the war in Ireland. Here it is:

    Hi Maria, it’s your fellow former Oaklander (& Little’s cuz)
    Kir told me about your blog.
    I love that your journey is so clearly motored and guided by your heart. People you interview can feel it and that translates to a joyous and thought-provoking experience for me the listener/reader.
    I wish you well and thanks for putting it out there!
